When he becomes Former President Obama, what will be President Obama’s focus? Will he be always seeking the limelight and trying to define his legacy? Will he be an ESPN announcer or a Hollywood star? Maybe he will have his on late night show or be a radio host. One thing you can count on is that he will not be silent. Read all about it here.
As Written By Aaron Case for American Thinker:
If you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until Barack Obama vacates the White House (at the time of this writing only 35 days, 19 hours, 43 minutes, 30 seconds). Finally, we won’t have to watch Barack cry over gun control or listen to Michelle Obama tell us to vote for a woman because she’s a woman, right? Not so fast.

ESPN collectively gushes every time Obama mentions sports. The failing network broadcasts him filling out a March Madness bracket every year and even hosted him live on The Undefeated. It’s easy to imagine Obama starting out with a First Take appearance — Stephen A. Smith already threw down the challenge — and regularly appearing on other shows as a guest analyst. He’s already on record with his 2016-2017 NBA and NFL champion predictions, so he may as well collect a paycheck from ESPN to repeat them.
- Barack Obama NBA Celebrity All-Star
Everyone knows that Obama loves to play basketball. He sent his education secretary Arne Duncan to represent him in four of the games, and in 2017 the president will be a civilian again, so he can go ….
